Pours dark and oily. Head non existent. Faint aroma. Alcohol and carbonation of the bat gives way to a decent stout flavor, but lacks the smooth mouthfeel that a sweet stout should deliver.
UPDATED: JUL 16, 2017 Draft at Macs Tavern. Opaque very dark brown/black watery stout. Tan foam. Medium-dark roasty malts. Cold coffee. Cocoa nibs. Vanillin. Carob. Hazelnuts. Raisins. Glossy charcoal briquette finish. Would be so much better on Nitro. Allow that this may be a poor draft. LetsGoState (883) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 25, 2017

12oz bottle pours black thin tan head aroma of coffee and a little smoke taste is medium sweetness with a lingering light bitterness gripweed57 (2452) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - MAY 16, 2017
12 ounce bottle. Opaque black liquid topped by a large dense tan head. Subtle roasted malt nose hints at chocolate and dark coffee. Sweet roasted malt flavor has notes of bittersweet chocolate and robust espresso. An underlying bitterness throughout arises in finish with some resiny hops. Dry malt aftertaste. Reminiscent of Guinness Foreign Extra Stout, only sweeter. skunky, HogTownHarry (6823) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - MAY 7, 2017
September 20, 2013 - 12oz bottle at Pub Italia (Ottawa). Nearly opaque ruby-black with a smallish mottle creamy tan head. Aroma has lacto sourness, solid coffee roast, mineral and herbal bitterness - has most of the markers of a sweet stout with more bitterness. Taste follows - lactose, dark chocolate, mineral hardness and noticeable alcohol. Average body, creamy and somewhat still mouthfeel - decent enough, not all that memorable.

355ml bottle from the Beer Junction at Sofi’s. Bottlee on 2016-11-30. Pours an almost black with a tan head. Aroma is fruity and roasted malt. Taste is the same with some sweetness, sourness, high roasted malt and hoppy bitterness. Quite harsh and not very pleasant. unclefrito62 (276) - Stow, Ohio, USA - JAN 17, 2017
12 ounce bottle. Pitch black in color with small tan head. Lightly carbonated. Not much aroma. I like the sweetness off setting the stout bitterness. Very smooth on the palate and this is above average stout. EdselRoams (1) - Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 7, 2017 does not count
Awesome. Mellow and smooth, nothing gets in the way, but not boring. Just like a sweet stout should be. Easy in every direction. OnTheTrail (505) - Virginia, USA - DEC 23, 2016
